    I'm looking for some honest feedback on my car. I'm planning on listing it this spring with the nice weather. I may even take it to the GM show at Carlisle and park it in the coral if I still have it in June. The interior is pretty much new.

    With that said, what does it need from a visual standpoint? What are the "flaws" that you can see on the exterior?

    I'm planning on working on the hood alignment. It has old tires and the original N90's. Should I blast/paint the N90's and put new tires on it, or leave this for the next owner?

    All feedback is appreciated!

    Here it is:

    Kind of hard to tell from just one pic.

    Take some pics from the front corners and the rear corners.

    Honest critique......

    You should get smacked upside the head for thinking about parting with that car.

    More Pics - yeah I favor the driver's side, but both sides look the same.

    The gauge pod has since been removed and the correct black A pillar cover was installed:

    The under body is pretty clean and mostly original - other than new springs/gas tank/hard lines/bushings/frame connectors/slapper bars:

    I would leave the wheels/tires alone. That is not somewhere you are going to get your money back, it's not like they are so awful that they would really affect the sale price.

    That's stock ride height though. These cars kind of dragged butt a little and sat up high in the front. If you are selling it as a stock survivor type car that's just how they are

    Put a correct grill in.

    ^ I say don't worry about the grille. Is it correct? No. But if the future owner wants to fix that, let HIM hunt for a decent OEM piece. No sense in sinking more money into the car for something that won't increase your sell price.

    Post up some interior pics and engine bay pics. The car looks pretty dadgummit good from what I can see.

    At the very least, clean the engine bay up with a Simple Green bath before you go to sellit. And vacuum the carpet....
